Hand Painted Kitchen Ascot Berkshire.

Kevin and his son Tom finished painting my kitchen last week and the result is amazing. Their attention to detail and the care taken is second to none , totally professional, extremely clean workers and at all times ensuring that the Client is entirely happy with the result being achieved. I have gone from a dated Cherrywood kitchen to a painted kitchen which looks absolutely stunning. Having researched Kitchen painters in some depth I am just so delighted I found Kevin and his son to complete the work.

Hand Painted Smallbone Kitchen.

Our solid oak Smallbones kitchen at 29 years old was still in very good condition but very much out of date and gloomy. I researched having it hand painted and was very pleased to find Kevin who is a true expert in his field. As soon as we met him we knew that the project was in safe hands, he has a real eye for colour palettes but more importantly he and his son Tom are true masters of their profession. From start to finish their attention to detail was second to none, they were a pleasure to have in our home, clean, tidy and courteous. Kevin is conscientious, knowledgeable and works to an extremely high standard and has an obvious passion for colour and specialist decoration. The end result is absolutely incredible. We have what seems like a brand new kitchen for a fraction of the cost. A gloomy dated room transformed into one with light and warmth. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Repaint of a bespoke Kitchen.

We had a bespoke painted kitchen which had become very tatty and chipped. We did not want to have to replace it and so we researched options. We found Kevin on the internet and he provided a very reasonable quotation and was happy to provide references, all of whom spoke so highly of him that we decided to go ahead and have the kitchen re-painted. We are very glad we did as Kevin and Tom have done a fantastic job. I have to say, it is now better than it was when it was new! We are absolutely delighted with the finished result and I have no hesitation in recommending Kevin and Tom.

17 year old bespoke kitchen.

Kevin and Tom have done a brilliant job painting the units in our kitchen. We had a 17 year old ‘bespoke’ wood finish kitchen that was looking tired and the room was being extended. We wanted to incorporate some of the original units along with new pieces but knew that several units would need to be painted to tie the look together. I wasn’t sure if this would work but was reassured by Kevin when he came to view the job and I felt he was very knowledgable. We were not disappointed. The kitchen looks fabulous and the painted units look like new pieces albeit with their slightly aged paint finish. Kevin and Tom were incredibly professional, tidy and helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Hand Painted Kitchen Bristol.

I am so happy to have worked with Kevin and his son Tom. After getting several quotes to paint our old laminate MFI kitchen, I was feeling discouraged with the lack of expertise. Luckily I found Kevin who immediately put my mind at ease, as he clearly is an expert. He not only explained the project in detail to me but also offered general advice on the best palette to pursue. Avoiding fumes and chemicals was important for us and Kevin took the time to research the VOC content of each paint he used and he sent me the full data sheets! What I appreciate most about Kevin is his general design/aesthetic sense which brings so much more to the table. He also takes the time to answer any questions/concerns you have no matter how small. He and Tom really care about the end result of the project and will let you know if they think you are heading in the wrong direction. Kevin and Tom were so professional, took their time and were meticulous, leading to a flawless finish. My kitchen cabinets, walls and tiles look amazing. Thank you! Kind regards,

“It is very rare to find genuine craftspeople of the highest caliber, who take great pride in their work, turning what is more often than not a pretty stressful and disruptive experience into something wholly different: a textbook example of how things ought to be done. Working with Kevin to transform a tired and rather twee looking kitchen into something crisp, modern and spectacular has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to exceptional, spotless and tidy finish. Kevin is a true artisan and master craftsman, who deserves the highest praise and I can only whole-heartedly recommend working with him.Get in touch and you won’t be disappointed!”

Exceeded Expectations in Cheltenham

When we decided not to replace our existing kitchen, my wife discovered Kevin’s company on the web. This was our lucky day, as from the first initial visit to discuss our requirements it was obvious we were in excellent hands. Kevin’s advice on everything from colour choices, finishes, technical information etc., was invaluable. Kevin and his son Tom fitted seamlessly into our home, taking great care to ensure that our property was protected and the whole process was completed with great skill and sensitivity. They were a pleasure to have in the apartment; invisible when working and entertaining when having a break! We are delighted with the result and feel we now have a new beautiful kitchen thanks to Kevin and Tom and will definitely recommend them.

Hand painted kitchen in Germany

Kevin and his son did a very great job hand painting our Mark Wilkinson kitchen. It looks very impressive and everybody loves it. Today, four years later, it looks exactly as brilliant as the day it was finished. They are both true professionals and we would highly recommend them. We where so happy with their work, that we asked them to paint our bathrooms in our new built house. The stone looking effects on the walls, that were created by Kevin are really fantastic.

Thank you very much!

Having you work here in our house was a big pleasure!

Dear Tom and Kevin,

I hope you had a good trip on the ferry and that you are well under way down through Denmark. Drive carefully! It was a pleasure to get to know you and to discover the very high standard of your work – we are very happy that you painted our kitchen and we are impressed by the result. We wish both of you merry Christmas.

Kind regards

Painting in Geneva 

“Kevin Mapstone was employed by me to paint my house in Palace Gardens Terrace, Kensington, with special effects, including the Mark Wilkinson designed kitchen which was superbly done. I also employed Kevin and his team to add special effects, including trompe l’oeil, to my house in Geneva, Switzerland, and to choose paints and give guidance on general decoration. They are very professional and organised and can envisage artistic treatment and clever touch-up wherever paintwork or a paint effect is needed. I remember that my greatest admiration was when they turned my ordinary bannister in Palace Gardens Terrace into what most people believed to be a solid oak bannister! During his time with me Kevin and his team always proved efficient, skilful and very reliable, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

I just wanted to email you to say thank you so very,very much for the fantastic job you did on my kitchen. You were so patient when I decided that the colour was not quite what I had in mind- and you just set to and redid it. Thank you . The finished paint effect is exactly what I hoped for. I am delighted. The quality of the paint finish is excellent. It was a pleasure to have you working in the house. you were unfailingly pleasant, cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. I was grateful , too , that you always cleared up immediately and left everywhere so tidy. My kitchen is as new again- thanks to you (and Tom , too!)”

Thank you once again,

Painting in Spain 

Kevin and Tom spent two and a half weeks working at my house in Spain. They were extremely professional, diligent and conscientious throughout which meant working with them was a pleasure. They carried out all their tasks with initiative and a great positive attitude. The house was left looking immaculate and the only regret was not being able to take advantage of some of their other obvious decorating skills. I look forward to working with them in the future.“

Faux painted kitchen France

Many people can paint and some people can paint very well – but very very few people can do subtle. The trompe l’oeil effect Kevin did for me in “three shades of white” added such depth to the neutral palate; I wanted to pull together the colours in my granite worktops and the limestone floor and Kevin’s special effect succeeded brilliantly.

This is the kitchen for which I’ve been waiting all my life! France

 Mrs Penny France

Hand painted kitchen Wheathampstead 

We have known Kevin and his son Tom for more than 10 years, since they both painted our original Mark Wilkinson Cooks’ kitchen.  The effect they created was exactly what we were looking for and, indeed, it stood the test of time.  We asked them back seven years later to refresh the original kitchen and to paint some new units for the first time.  We repeated this process just last year with some further work in our kitchen.  The amazing thing is, both our kitchen and utility room cupboards, not to mention the surrounding decor, now look as though they were painted at exactly the same time!  Kevin and Tom are true professionals who do exactly what they say they are going to do.  They deliver the highest quality work on-time and are never prepared to cut corners or compromise the all-important details.  They are a pleasure to deal with, taking great care to contain the inevitable “mess” while the job is underway, respecting the fact that they frequently find themselves working in the busiest areas of any house.  They are great company too – on one occasion they stayed at our house while the job was underway, as this helped maximise their productivity with an approaching deadline.

In short, we can’t recommend them highly enough!
